Please join us in our efforts of providing great activities and programs for people
with special needs ,while bringing awareness and advocacy.
Team ARC is one of a kind. Caring people partner with ARC to run/walk events
on behalf of individuals with developmental disabilities, to raise funds for programs
& advocacy/awareness. Athletes with special needs join in the events as active members
of the community and run/walk to strive towards their health & wellness goals and
promote awareness in the community. LA Marathon 2012 Team ARC had 4 athletes with
special needs complete the full 26.2 miles, including the first two women with Down
syndrome to finish a marathon.
ARC is a special place where friendships & memories are built! The ARCers
are great people and capable of so much. Each week many individuals with developmental
disabilities are served by ARC in the Day Program, Adaptive Living Program, Saturday
Program (at no cost), Young Adult Club... Though it doesn’t stop there, the ARCers
give back by rolling silverware at a local senior center. ARC also advocates & educates
the community about special needs via the English Hand Bell & Chime Choirs. Both
the choirs and Team ARC gives these individuals a chance to shine and become active
members of the community.
